Readers Respond: SPARQL Will Make the Web Shine

Readers respond to the eWEEK editorial, "SPARQL Will Make the Web Shine."

Thanks for the excellent article on SPARQL (Jim Rapozas Tech Directions, "SPARQL Will Make the Web Shine," May 1).

Im part of the SPARQL working group at the World Wide Web Consortium and am thinking exactly along the lines of your article on how to bridge the semantic Web and Web 2.0. Ive been fighting the RDF [Resource Description Framework] vs. XML battle to no avail, but I think we clearly have something to offer with SPARQL.

Ive been focused on creating demos that bridge existing Web 2.0 applications with SPARQL and AJAX [Asynchronous JavaScript and XML], and they have gotten very positive reviews.
